Comments Off on Set up camp anywhere with Latvia’s luxurious Camping Box

Camping just got a lot more glamorous with the Camping Box , a modular eco-friendly box that’s super easy to set up. InBoxLifestyle designed the creative tent or camper alternative, and their 97-square-foot box can house four people comfortably. The Latvia -based company says their Camping Box allows campers to escape into nature while feeling like they’re staying at a fancy hotel . The Camping Box is about what it sounds like: a box you can set up just about anywhere and sleep or cook inside while camping. But these innovative dwellings are designed to be a step up from your standard camper or tent; according to the company, they provide “high class hotel benefits in the middle of nowhere.” Related: Sublime tiny cabins in British Columbia that can be installed within hours The modular boxes are easy to maintain and move. They’re made of fiberglass , and are rain and snow resistant. They can also be popped up without project approval. They don’t take up a lot of space, so could be tucked into a corner of a backyard or forest. InBoxLifestyle says their Camping Boxes will last for years, and are nature friendly. The design of the company’s boxes is energy efficient thanks to what they describe as the latest generation ventilation and heating system. The boxes can be connected to the grid or water and sewage systems. But InBoxLifestyle does say on their website that boxes in remote locations can have an individual solution for water and sewage. InBoxLifestyle offers multiple floor plans for their Camping Box, including ones for two or four people, ones with kitchens, bathrooms, or showers, and even a sauna and Jacuzzi box. Prices for the four-person option start at $13,416.60. The company works with clients to design the interior according to what amenities a person wants inside their Camping Box. The Camping Box isn’t the only modular box setup InBoxLifestyle offers. They offer a Gym Box, Kitchen Box, and Office Box, to name a few.

Leaked Tesla document confirms Model 3 with 215+ mile range

Comments Off on Leaked Tesla document confirms Model 3 with 215+ mile range

Tesla hasn’t released all the official performance specs for the upcoming Model 3 sedan, but a leaked dealer document just gave away a lot of the juicy details. A member of the Tesla Model 3 Owners Club recently came across a dealer product sheet that compares the specs for the Model S to the Model 3 – effectively revealing the Model 3’s driving range and other performance specs. Rather than promote the Model 3, the leaked document looks more like a way to educate Tesla’s sales staff about ways to sell the Model S over the Model 3. It points out many of the Model 3’s shortcomings compared to the flagship Model S, but either way, we now know that the Model 3 will have a 215+ mile driving range. That driving range puts it just a tad below the Chevy Bolt, but miles ahead of any other electric car in its price range. Related: Tesla is taking some major risks by accelerating production of Model 3 The leaked document also reveals that the Model 3 will be able to reach 60 mph in 5.6 seconds, which is definitely slower than the Model S P100D Ludicrous, but still faster than some sports cars. The Model 3 will also have a modestly sized front and rear trunk space with 14 cubic feet of cargo space, about half the space that the Model S has. Lastly, while the Model S has over 1,500 configurations, the Model 3 will only have about 100 and many of the premium features, like a Smart Air Suspension or HEPA filter won’t even be available on the Model 3. The Model 3 will also not have free access to Tesla’s Supercharger network, like the Model S and instead it will be “pay per use.” If you were to put a deposit down on a Model 3 today, you will have to wait more than a year before production even starts, which means meaning you won’t get your Model 3 until mid-2018. + Tesla Via Model 3 Owners Club and Inside EVs Images @Tesla

Nomadic bookseller travels all over France with his tiny library on wheels

Comments Off on Nomadic bookseller travels all over France with his tiny library on wheels

We’ve seen a number of tiny home constructions put to all sorts of good use, but this French nomadic library on wheels is très chic . Built by tiny home specialists La Maison Qui Chemine , the Librairie Itinérante (traveling bookstore) is a custom-made tiny home built for an altruistic bookseller who travels the all over France delivering books to small villages that don’t have their own libraries or bookshops. The tiny home was designed for Jean-Jacques, who travels around the country in his library on wheels bringing books to hopeful bibliophiles. He often travels from festival to festival, but when stationary, he hosts free readings in the evenings. The event is open to anyone who brings their own slippers. Related: London’s only floating bookshop finally has a permanent home While most tiny home designs focus on being lightweight for easy travel, this building had to be specially outfitted to carry the estimated 700 pounds of books it carries on the interior. To make sure that the some 3,000 books stay in place while on the road, thick curtains were installed at the top of each shelf, which, when secured shut, wrap around the bookshelves tightly, creating a secure, fall-proof system. The tiny home also doubles as a home for the wandering bookseller. There is a small kitchen and a sleeping loft that is reached by a ladder. In the corner, surrounded by the bookshelves, is a quaint reading space with a custom-made table. The small bathroom has a composting toilet , but, per Jean-Jacques’ request, there is no plumbing installed in the structure. + La Maison Qui Chemine Via Treehugger Images via La Maison Qui Chemine
